Tergoule – Normandy Rice Pudding

Tergoule is a rice pudding baked in a low slow oven for hours until the top becomes golden and caramelised. It can be served warm or cold, and when it cools it firms up so you can cut it into slices like a tart. Serve it with vanilla ice cream.

DESSERTS

La Flognarde aux Apricots

An egg and fruit french flan made from a batter of flour, eggs, sugar and milk and flavoured with lemon zest. Usually made with plums, grapes or pears, we made it with apricots because that’s what we had to hand. You can also make it without fruit when it is called Flan du Périgord. It’s deceptively easy for a dessert that rises like a fluffy cloud in the oven giving you a highly impressive end result.

FOOD FEATURES

Do You Need a Meat Grinder?

Meat grinders are used to mince meat at home for health reasons, to make home-made sausages and burgers or if you are particular about the texture of ground meat and find that a food processor grinds it too finely. They attach to a work surface so they can be stored out of sight until you need them.

Orange and Almond Cake with Maple Syrup

This is similar to Claudia Roden’s much-copied and much revered Orange and Almond Cake. A whole orange is used to give flavour and moisture to the cake but you don’t have to boil the fruit for 2 hours as you do in the original recipe once you have a food processor – the orange is blitzed quickly as part of the batter-making process.
